Two families who refused to meet President Trump during his visit to the city on Wednesday say they were offended by his presence in El Paso.
The Washington Post reports that eight victims and their families did not agree to meet with the president.
Leticia Mariscal, representing the family of a girl who was shot in the leg and released from the hospital but whose father remains in critical condition said, "The whole family said if he wants to go into the room, no.
We don't want him in the patient's room.
And we respect all of our family's opinion.
Because of the way he talked against Mexicans, against Hispanics, so we don't want to a person that are against our Mexicans." The family of Jorge Calvillo, who died in the shooting, also did not want to speak with the president.
Calvillo's brother remains in the hospital.
"I wish he wouldn't have needed to come.
I think he just came to do a circus.
He was the one who brewed up all of this hatred against Mexicans I guess he forgot what he said," said Saul Chavez, representing the family.
